In Loving Memory of Joseph Mark Lynch January 26th, 1996 - April 5th, 2018
Only a true friend would wear an Eagles hat!
A SMALL PIECE OF JOE'S STORY
Joe Lynch was a standout student and athlete at Holy Cross High School his freshman and sophomore years and Wolcott High School his junior and senior years. He went on to attend Post University where he was a member of both the Honors Program as an accounting major and the Sprint Football team. Joe was actively involved in all aspects of school life at Holy Cross, Wolcott High and Post, and received many academic and athletic awards along the way. He took full advantage of every opportunity he was given and was proud of all he was able to accomplish. After being diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2016, Joe began treatment at Connecticut Childrens Medical Center. During his time at CCMC, Joe served as a role model for other patients and left a lasting impression on the doctors, nurses and staff who cared for him. He was an amazing son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend who passed away too soon at the age of 22, on April 5th 2018.
Thank you to everyone who golfed, volunteered, sponsored and donated! It was a great day, a lot of fun and a beautiful tribute to Joe! Thank you all for the friendship and support!
